    The Sandakan death marches in Borneo will live in history as one of the greatest atrocities suffered by Australia in the Asia-Pacific theatre of the Second World War. Of almost 1,400 Australian prisoners of war held by Imperial Japanese forces at Sandakan camp in 1945 only six would survive, escape their only means to do so.

     

    15th August this year marks the 75th commemoration of that unprecedented event.
